The Value of Motorcoach Travel
For many families and small groups, traveling in a car or small vehicle may be too arduous and too demanding than other, more spacious vehicle options. There are bumps in the road, potholes, and the demand on the driver, all of which don’t allow for an enjoyable road trip, especially if the family or small group has young children.
A motor coach or chartered bus offers more options and amenities than a smaller vehicle, especially when it comes to traveling over larger distances.
The earliest variation of the motor coach actually occurred in the early 1800s, when horse drawn buses were prevalent throughout city streets and for travel between rural locations. In fact, it was England that developed the first intercity mode of transportation by coach, with its steam powered coaches in the 1830s.
Motorcoaches have strong economic and environmental benefits. With motorcoaches accounting for more than 750 million passenger trips annually, one motorcoach spending one night at a destination can bring in more than $11,000 for that destination, when lodging, restaurants, and other expenditures are taken into account.
The benefit is obvious when looking at how motorcoaches bring value to other sectors of the economy. For every $1 spent on a new motorcoach, $1.65 is spread into different industries that are affected by motorcoach travel and motorcoach construction. In all, motorcoach travel and tourism demand account for nearly $55 billion in economic transactions every year.
Motor coaches, too, are better for the environment than many other forms of transportation. Charter buses for rent are three times more efficient when it comes to CO2 emissions than commuter rail and six times more efficient than commuter buses. In fact, motor coaches emit less carbon dioxide per passenger than all other forms of transportation.
Charter buses for rent have the added value for customers in that they allow for a much easier travel time, with opportunity to look at the landscape and much more comfort. The comfort on board a bus can include more leg room, which is enviable on long cross country journeys. A businessman can travel comfortably on a bus in part because there often is wifi on a bus. Also, some motor coaches have reclining seats.
Climate control travel is important as well. Being safe from the elements and the persistent buffering of the wind, as well as the perfect temperature to travel in while relaxing with the family or small group of friends, adds to a safe and enjoyable trip. Charter buses for rent give these options or often do and that adds to their general sense of value when it comes to traveling.
For the family of four who is just looking to get away or the group of college friends that want an easier way to travel or the businessman that wants to do work while enjoying the landscape of America, chartered buses for rent can enable the blissful, relaxing nature of a climate controlled road trip with no worries at all.
